Hello to all the Festival goers!
Thanks so much for helping to make this years festival a success.
We had a bit of wet weather and it was not as warm as some years in the past, but for the most part, everyone jumped in with both feet and had a good time.
We had a few tours that lacked quality directions and so some people missed the meeting places. We are going to fix that for next year, and some of the tours that had to be cancelled for Covid, (and other reasons) will hopefully be back in the guide for 2023.
We would also like to offer something for your sons and daughters and their children too! We are working on that and would welcome your suggestions
Those that didn’t make the concert on Friday night missed a great event. The Wine Village is a beautiful venue and seems really well suited for outdoor concerts. We would like to make it a traditional evening.
The Gala Dinner at the Lakeside on Sunday evening was also a great event. A really good meal and nice music and A special shout out to Bob Nicholson who did an outstanding job as MC and auctioneer. The team that put together the auction items made sure there was something for everyone and there were no items left behind. Some great deals were had.
Before I forget, I have to say that the volunteers and the tour leaders made this easy, educational and fun. I can’t say enough about these people who give their time and energy to make the weekend a success. We would be lost without them.
We are reviewing the good and bad parts of this years Festival and already have some ideas on how to make it better in 2023.
Again Thanks for coming out. We were missing you and are so happy you had a good time.
See you in 2023!
Back by popular demand!
The Meadowlark Nature Festival will return to the South Okanagan this coming spring after a 2-year hiatus for the health and safety of our supporters and participants.
As Covid 19 concerns ease and people look forward to getting back to a new normal, we have had many calls and emails looking for information and confirmation. We thought it best to let everyone know we will be going forward.
We will look a little different in 2022 in order to abide by any restrictions laid out by the Provincial Health Authority, but we are well rested and eager to offer the best festival yet!
We will have more information for you as we get more organized but mark your calendars for May 20-23, 2022. We are excited to be welcoming back all our devoted volunteers, supporters, and guests.
